Thanks to Jacob for sharing his remarkable experiences
on the grounds of Nashville Elementary. Jacob and his friends witnessed
a shadowy creature that emitted an ear piercing high-pitched scream.
Later on a return trip to the school, they witnessed a horrid creature
with red glowing eyes, pasty white skin, and a long mouth with
incisor-like teeth. They had a disposable camera and took a photo of the
creature, but unfortunately, the camera was mixed up with other cameras
and was thrown away. Too bad, that would have been an amazing picture!
I lived in Nashville for quite
a long time and never thought of it as eerie or possessing any
paranormal activity. Gradually I have come to change my mind.
Chronologically what happened to me goes back to when I was younger,
about age 12. It was around Halloween and a few kids older thanI was
went into the forest for fun, just to get outside. THey apparently heard
something and saw a strange creature and went running to a friends
parents house, faces pale in a state of near hysteria.
Fast forward a few years to
when I was maybe 15. A friend of mine lived down by the school and said
late at night, around 2 AM he would hear strange noises. Fast forward
one more time to when I was 17 going on 18 and a friend and I were at
the school around midnight sitting in the parking lot, talking about
music and our lives (this is a good time to point out that my friend and
I were not into drugs or alcohol). At the time neither of us were
thinking of anything unusual, and I had totally forgotten about the
strange noises and sighting of the creature until my friend and I heard
this noise. It came from the forest behind the school and sounded like a
mix between a large cat growling and an ear piercing high-pitched
scream. My friend and I looked at each other confused. So we walked back
about 100 feet from the edge of the forest and listened. Once more we
heard it, except this time it was much more loud and highly defined. We
got scared and decided to get out of there. We turned around and walked
maybe 20 feet when standing two or three feet in front of us was a
shadow maybe three and a half feet high that had the upper body of a
human and its legs looked like a goat or pig; with its knees going in
instead of out like a human. We said to each other, "Are you seeing
that?" "Yea! What is it?" "I don't know." It seemed as if we were in
this thing's way and soon enough it went around us and darted around the
side of the school. At the time we just described it as being "darker
The last time we went to the
school we had brought a disposable camera hoping to take a picture of
it. As soon as we had started walking back there we saw it in a spot
near where it was the first time we saw it. This time, though, it was
standing up pointing its head around like it was looking for something.
The creature was probably six and a half or seven feet tall with pasty
white skin. It was naked and didn't look like it had genitalia. Its head
was very similar to a human's, but its facial features were very
different. Its eyes glowed red when caught in the light, it seemed to
have only holes where its nose was and its mouth was very long,
stretching almost from ear to ear with what looked to be very pronounced
incisor-like teeth. It was not very muscular but also not very big. It
had the physique of a runner or swimmer. Its body was barely spotted
Almost immediately after we saw
it looking around, it took a few strides and jumped onto a tree and
climbed it incredibly quickly with all four limbs. It was very
aggressive and seeing something like that made us scream. It looked down
at us from up in the tree and pointed its head in confusion. We stood
there dazed by what was going on, and a few moments later it left the
tree (even though we could barely tell). We looked around trying to spot
it, and after taking a few steps toward the forest, it made the noise
again and came out from the forest maybe 150 feet from us. It was
standing there in full view, but just on the edge of the forest still.
It paced back and forth in a very aggressive manner occasionally looking
at us, and we took a few steps toward it, snapped a picture and ran.
Unfortunately the camera I had
used was mixed up with other disposables and thrown away. So now all I
have is this story and a friend who can attest to it. This was in the
summer of 2004 and since then I only heard it once. I told another
friend about it and he went for walks with me to the school and only
once did we hear the noise. I haven't told many people, but the people I
have told have said that for sure we saw a shadow person and the
creature we saw could have been many things. I've heard everything from
grays to different aliens to demons and everything in between. I don't
know what to think of it anymore, but is something I will never forget.
Thank you for listening to what I have to say.
